  • Patent number: 4174349
    Abstract: Fluoroorganic compounds are prepared by reacting a haloorganic starting material in which at least one halo atom is replaceable with a fluorine atom by metathetical exchange, with calcium fluoride in the presence of a crown ether and an anhydrous, polar, basic organic solvent which complexes with the calcium ion and contains no --OH groups, at a temperature and for a period of time adequate to effect fluorination.

  • Patent number: 4124606
    Abstract: Sulfonation of anthraquinone by a sulfur trioxide component including SO.sub.3 or oleum in a liquid sulfur dioxide solvent. When a mercury catalyst is used to give alpha anthraquinone sulfonate products, most of the mercury is left in the reactor or recovered with unreacted anthraquinone by precipitation with water after vaporization of the sulfur dioxide. High sulfuric acid and mercury pollution are thus avoided.

  • Patent number: 4072027
    Abstract: A stabilized heat exchange medium is disclosed including a fluorocarbon, an absorbant and a tribasic phosphite stabilizer. The preferred absorbants are assymetrical furan derivatives containing at least 1 oxygen with a single bond to an adjacent carbon, and is most preferably an alkyl tetrahydrofurfuryl ether. The fluorocarbon contains 1 or 2 carbons, 1 or 2 hydrogens and the remainder chlorine and fluorine. The tribasic phosphites are of the formula (R.sub.1 'O)(R.sub.2 'O)(R.sub.3 'O)P, wherein R.sub.1 ', R.sub.2 ' and R.sub.3 ' are each independently alkyl, alkenyl, phenyl, alkylene phenyl, alkylene alkylphenyl or alkylphenyl.
